About

AVPN and the Inclusive Business Action Network (IBAN) are excited to bring to you a series of knowledge and capacity-building seminars on Inclusive Business and Impact Investment. The programme will focus on 4 key markets: Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

We aim to support impact investors in unlocking collaboration opportunities in inclusive businesses, thus enabling funders and resource providers to maximize their impact.

Why this matters

367 million people in ASEAN live at the base of the pyramid (BoP) on US$6 or less a day.

Inclusive business approaches offer an opportunity for companies to uplift them and their families by engaging them as customers, suppliers, distributors and retailers.


What you will gain
  • An understanding of ASEAN’s inclusive business landscape, opportunities and challenges
  • An appreciation for the social investment ecosystem and financial instruments available to scale impact
  • Skills on how to integrate impact into the core value proposition of your business
  • Opportunities to connect and partner with impact investors, policymakers and businesses
Who should participate
  • Corporate leaders interested in exploring new market opportunities to uplift the BoP
  • Capital providers looking for medium to large investment opportunities for social impact
  • Social enterprises and intermediaries looking to finance new and innovative approaches for poverty alleviation
  • Government representatives and policymakers looking to create an enabling environment for inclusive business
